To Show or Not To Show?

To show or not to show, that is the question. What the heck are you talking about, you may say. Well, we are talking about your socks of course! The trend these days is to show some skin, some ankle skin to be exact.  We know that this is fine in milder climates, but some of you live in areas that are just plain frigid. So we think you can show some cool socks too.  Here are some examples of how we would wear our shoes from the shop with or “without” hosiery.

 

First up the ever popular ankle boot. Everybody has a pair, right? We would wear these P. Monjo boots with no-show-socks if we were wearing a midi length dress or skirt. With a pair of jeans, we would flash these fancy crane crews.

 

We love a good oxford around here! We think it’s perfectly acceptable to pretend we are wearing no socks as well as to show off some really cute designed ones too.

 

 

Tall boots. Totally okay to not show your socks obviously, but we also think it’s super cute when they peek out the cuff too.

 

These are just a few samples of what we have at re-souL. To see more of our shoe and sock collections, visit us in Ballard or shop on-line at resoul.com.

 

 

WTWW – 3 Ankle Boots and How to Wear Them

Hi there! It’s time for another edition of  “What to Wear Wednesday”. Since ankle boots are here to stay, we thought we would look at 3 distinctive styles and how we would wear them. We know the days don’t quite feel autumnal yet, but it will be here sooner than you know it. Whether you want to go more casual or more polished, we have some examples that are sure to fit into your personal style for this Fall.

As an every day, walk around town, kind of boot, we like the classic flat lace-up boot. These are versatile enough to wear with everything. Especially if you are a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal. We would wear these with our skinny jeans and a comfy sweater. But feel free to wear them with longer skirts and shorter dresses too.resouL_moma_ankle_boots

Sometimes getting around during the day is much easier when you are not teetering on a high skinny heel. You can be perfectly comfortable walking to the bus, on your way to work, while still looking pulled together. Besides, blocky mid heels are totally on point and on trend these days.  Although these would work with skinny jeans too, we think to style them with a skirt is a fantastic option to your basic pump. When the days become crisp, add some opaque tights and you are good to go for the cooler months ahead.

Everybody has a black ankle boot in their wardrobe, right? We love the clean simple lines of these tall heel ankle boots but, it’s all about that green color! These would look amazing with dresses and skirts. We, however, like these forest beauties with wide leg trousers.  Add a turtleneck top to balance the look of the pant leg and viola, you have an instantly chic outfit.
